About Jane

Hi, I am Jane and I own and manage this wonderful villa at Kissimmee, Florida. I have three boys age from 2 to 8. All of them love this house and enjoy their vacation here. We recently upgraded the floor and the game room in the house. We are looking for more plans to decorate this house into a dream vacation house for our guests. I sincerely hope this house can be a sweet and cozy home for you when you stay in Disney area. I strive to manage you stay to fit for your budget with providing your good service and making your vacation a life long lasting memory full of happiness.

Jane purchased this villa in 2013

Why Jane chose Kissimmee

Location! Location! Location! The house is very close to Disney Theme Parks and the Hwy 192, the center business area of Kissimmee.

What makes this villa unique

This house is located at one of the biggest lots, which provides an absoutely private distance away from neighbor's house. Enjoy an easy and fast access to major hight ways and main attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awesome. Thank you for everything. We are absolutely satisfied in your home and I will be sure to say so. We will definitely be using you again.

Great Orlando Property

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nice and all of my family was very comfortable. My grand kids really loved the swimming pool and game room and we were very close to Disney and shopping.

Nice vacation

  • 5 of 5

We as a group of 10 stayed in Jane’s villa for one week in Oct, 2016. We had great time. The house is very spacious and perfect for our needs. The neighborhood is very quiet and well kept. All commercials such as supermarkets, restaurants and shopping centers are close and less than a 5 min drive away. The house is very convenient to the Disney parks. We were back at the house in less than 15 minutes from the parks. We had zero service issue during our staying. The house was clean and it offered everything we need. The pool looks really nice at night. My family all enjoyed the pool after exhausting Disney trips. We happened to meet the property manager, who came to service on the pool. He is a funny guy and very friendly. Our stay at the villa was joyful, as well as our communication with Jane. Jane was very responsive to answer my questions promptly. Overall it was a great stay and very worthy rental. We would definitely stay there again when coming back to Orlando. I would recommend this place. Thanks Jane for everything.

Clean and perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home last week. Your home was clean and had everything that we needed for our multi family vacation to the Disney parks. The kids had a lot of fun in the pool while the adults enjoyed the pool deck. The home had a beautiful view of a lake and fountain as well! The location could not be beat.... Just minutes off of Disney property! We look forward to staying here again in the future.

HORRIBLE!!!!

  • 1 of 5

This is one of the worst places I've ever stayed at away from home. The bedroom sheets were dirty with hair and stains, couches filthy, the bathroom sinks rusty, and there were roaches in the bathroom and dining room 😒😠 and to top it off when I called the landlord (Jane Yang) to tell her about the conditions of the home she was upset with me for calling, and extremely rude and unapologetic. I would NOT recommend anyone stay in this home unless you want to be disappointed. Not happy 😑😟😡

Owner's Response: Thank for renting and sharing the guest’s experience. I am very sorry that my property did not meet the guest’s expectation. My goal is to provide a clean, comfortable and affordable vacation rental. This was from the guest rented my house for 2 days from Oct 21 to 23 as a Florida local group. After receiving the e-mail complaint in the morning on Oct 22, I immediately sent my property manager on-site to help. Beside some minor issues addressed on-site, the guest requested the “compensation”. The review was submitted after the guest’s request was rejected on Oct 22. We also offered a partial refund if the guest did not like to continue their stay. But guest declined our offer and continued their stay. The guest would not be satisfied unless the guest got the “compensation”, no matter how much effort we made technically from my property management and my side. All of our effort on-site and off-site to solve the problem was ignored by the guest. All discussion on technical issues with the guest became in vain. I would like to discuss closely if other guests like to know more detail. While my house is not perfect to meet all guests’ expectations, we devote to improving our service and facility continuously. We also hope to work with our guests closely to address any issue more effectively and constructively. Thanks again and wish a happy life for everyone.

A bit dated

  • 3 of 5

To begin, Jane the owner is very responsive. If you make her aware of any issues she takes care of it asap. When we arrived the hvac system drainage had clogged up and the carpet in the garage was soggy. Being closed up for sometime when we opened the front door it had a moldy smell that was overbearing. We went to Walmart bought candles, Pinesol, and air fresheners and went to work opening windows turning on fans and essentially airing out the house. We contacted Jane and she had an air conditioner tech come out and service the unit (she's on the ball). My only other issue is that the furniture is extremely dated. I don't expect top of the line furniture, but at least furniture that appears to have been purchased in this decade! It's not a bad place to stay but with just a little tlc it could be so much better.

I place the blame for the maintenance issues with the property on the property management company. Jane seems to be an out of state owner so she can only rely on what they inform her about.

Owner's Response: Thank you for reviewing my property. We are sorry that the AC leak happened during your staying. You were very considerate and gave us time to correct this issue in time. I have been working hard to run home improvement projects continuously. As you can tell that we have upgraded some furniture including a king bedroom set, floor, TVs and most appliances. We will keep doing this and your advice is well taken. My goal is to provide a clean, comfortable and affordable vacation rental. I strive to offer a vacation home to meet all guests’ need and moreover, everyone can afford it. I believe it will help more guests come to Orlando and Disney and enjoy their vacation here. Thank you for referring us to a neighbor. Look forward to having you back.

wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

the location cannot be beat! We were not even ten minutes to the parks. The home has everything you need to be comfortable. Plenty of room for 10+ people. close to shopping as well. We had a few minor issues that Jane was made aware of and handled. We would rent again.

Owner's Response: Thanks a lot Vicky. Your honest comment and constructive suggestion will greatly help me improve our service. I am so happy that you enjoyed your vacation in my villa. I will continue working with a responsible property management company to serve my guests better. You are so nice to tell me something I don't even know in the house so I can deal with them more efficiently. Thanks again. Welcome back anytime.
